OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss men’s tennis team, coming off a successful opening weekend in Southeastern Conference play, welcomes No. 4 Virginia to the Palmer/Salloum Tennis Center/Galtney Courts Wednesday at 2 p.m. The first 200 fans to the match will receive a free collector’s poster of junior Jonas Lutjen.
“They started off the year at No. 2 in the nation, and many people feel like they are the second best team in the country behind Southern Cal,” head coach Billy Chadwick said. “It’s great to have them coming here, and I want to encourage all of our fans to come out and see some great tennis.”
The Rebels look to keep their win streak alive after last week’s wins over No. 32 Memphis, No. 12 Auburn and Alabama. Ole Miss was one of four teams to go 2-0 on the opening weekend of conference play.
“It’s a great opportunity for us to beat one of the best teams in the nation,” said Lutjen, who went 5-1 last week in singles and doubles in aiding the cause. “I think we match up well against them, and if we play well, we’re capable of the upset. We’re looking forward to it.”
A big reason for the Rebels success of late, is strong play from the top of the lineup. The Rebels went 8-1 last week at one, two and three with Lutjen, freshman Nik Scholtz and senior Marcel Thiemann.
Virginia comes to the state of Mississippi sporting an 8-1 record. They have not lost more than one point in their eight wins. They will take on Mississippi State Tuesday before coming to Oxford.
The Cavaliers boast the No. 1 and 8 ranked players in the nation—Mitchell Frank and Jamere Jenkins—in the top half of their lineup. Alex Domijan, who has been playing No. 1 for UVA, is ranked No. 53. The Cavaliers’ No. 1 doubles team of Drew Courtney and Domijan is ranked No. 13 in the nation.
